Diane’s extensive knowledge of Grocontinental during her long career with us makes her the perfect Project Manager. She is happy to be parachuted in at a moment’s notice to pick up a host of project work business-wide.
She also has specific responsibility for managing our disaster recovery system and overseeing drivers’ wages and uniforms.
Grocontinental lynchpin Diane joined the company from school and has completed an impressive tally of 36 years’ service.
Diane’s first job was as telephonist/receptionist at the company’s original headquarters in Higher Heath, near Whitchurch. Since then, she has worked her way around the business to gain an in-depth understanding of pretty much every area of Grocontinental.
Her roles have included Warehouse Administrator, Warehouse Manager and Customer Services Manager. She has also worked in Accounts, our Transport Team, HR, and the Control Centre.
Diane says the only thing she hasn’t yet turned her hand to is driving a lorry! There’s still time Diane!
Diane enjoys bowling, cooking, walking, music, holidays and having a good laugh socialising with her friends.
She married at 19 years’ old had her first and only son at the age of 42! Diane says she loves spending time with son, Sam, especially baking cakes, and looks forward to sitting out in her garden during the summer months.
